On July 31st 2016, a building collapsed in Bhiwandi, a suburb of Mumbai, India killing 8 people and injuring more. The causes are investigated by authorities. The failure of course raises concern among residents of similar structures.
Last Thursday, a collapse of a four-story building occurred in the Ponte Milvio area of northern Rome, near the Foreign Ministry. Fortunately there are no deaths or injuries, but many people lost their home. The causes are being investigated by authorities and the surrounding buildings are being inspected in case they’re affected by the collapse.
Nine people were buried in Wenzhou, Zhejiang province in Eastern China after a residence complex collapsed on the morning of Thursday Feb. 2, and seven of them have been reported dead. The building’s poor construction was probably the reason for the collapse, as there had been no reports of extreme weather in the area over the last days. Next to the collapsed apartments still stands a residential building seeming relatively intact, which forces the rescuers to work carefully. More than 400 people were involved in rescue efforts, including soldiers, police, fire rescue personnel, and medical staff.
